Grow Your Following on Instagram With Us: #SITSSummer


It seems that everywhere you turn people are excitedly sharing photos with friends and family.

At least, we now are…


That’s right. You can now find The SITS Girls on Instagram.

To celebrate, we felt like we needed a community event, something that would bring us all together to learn more about this photo sharing app and build everyone’s following.

Plus, it is kinda what we do. :)

Here’s how you can get involved…

#SITSSummer on Instagram

1. Link Up Your Instagram Account

If you are interested in growing your following, then add a link to your Instagram account below.

We want to see your photos!

To link directly to your Instagram account, you’ll need to do so using Followgram. It is a super easy app developed as a way to extend Instagram’s functionality to the web. Plus, if you are anything like us, the faster you can follow people, the better.

2. Read our Instagram Tutorials

For the coming week, we’ll be doing what we do best, educating you on the in’s and out’s of how to use this latest, greatest social media darling. Check back as we’ll be publishing daily tips on how to use Instagram and grow your following.

3. Use the Hashtag #SITSSummer on Instagram

You know how we like to keep things fun, so in honor of our Instagram kickoff, we’ll be hosting a mini 7 day photo challenge. All you need to do is post pictures using the below prompts for the next seven days and we’ll be featuring ALL of them here on The SITS Girls and sharing via our social media channels.

It is all happening now, so grab your Android or iPhone and jump in!

  • Wednesday, June 27: Outside
  • Thursday, June 28: Friends
  • Friday, June 29: Water
  • Saturday, June 30: Morning Routine
  • Sunday, July 1: Staying Cool
  • Monday, July 2: Family
  • Tuesday, July 3: Feeling Patriotic

Instagram is such a great way to get a peek into one another’s world.  To check out all the photo fun, be sure to head over to our Instagram photo page. We’re featuring everyone who is participating here on The SITS Girls and via our social media channels.

  4. What a great idea! I’ve had instagram for a while now. But, I don’t do the usual posts. My angle is a bit different than most. I added a link on my Weather Anchor Mama blog. Please check it out. I haven’t really paid much attention in growing in, but I just checked. I have more followers on instagram than my own blog. Crazy!
